Bayonetta 2 disappears, Alien: Isolation drops in UK charts

After placing in the seventh spot in the UK sales charts in its first week of release, Bayonetta 2 has dropped completely out of Chart Track’s┬átop 40 in its second week.

What’s worse is Mario Kart 8 has also retaken the top spot in the Wii U top 20, pushing Bayonetta 2 to the second spot.

Meanwhile, Alien: Isolation dropped from the ninth spot to 13th, in the week ending on Nov. 1.

We’re not really sure exactly why Bayonetta 2 has seen such a sharp decline in sales from week to week. FIFA 15 continues to dominate the top of the top 40 chart, while newcomers like Sunset Overdrive, WWE 2K15 and Lords of the Fallen entered their first week at retail in the top 10, so strong competition certainly is a factor.

We hope Bayonetta 2 can bounce back next week, but it’s tough for a game to climb back in the top 40 once it’s out. We’ll see.
